Check out some fun we’ve been having in our Phenomenal Science unit!

We did a Secchi disk experiment where we measure the visual depth of a disk to determine how much light shines through the top layers of water.

Students used the Secchi disk in three buckets of water mixed with various amounts of debris.

They performed three trials in each bucket and averaged their data for accuracy.

They recorded their findings in data tables and drew models to show what was happening.

They made sure to put their heads together to agree when the Secchi disk “disappeared!”

It took teamwork and cooperation to execute our lab!

Thumbs up for a fun, hands-on investigation!
